Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) is back for revenge against his dad Phil (Steve McFadden) in EastEnders and he would go to serious lengths – but would that be as far as killing his own sister Louise (Tilly Keeper) who is caught in the crossfire?
Louise was kidnapped tonight by Midge and as viewers fear that she will die, they are also perturbed by the prospect that Ben may have been behind it. As a car raced off with Louise, leaving a terrified Keanu (Danny Walters) in its wake, Phil faces a mission to get his snatched daughter back.
We have seen Ben do some threatening and deplorable things since his return – and it wouldnt be the first time that Louise has been the target of his violent bullying – though this would be off the scale.
However, he did say to Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) that he wants to see Phil lose everything and be utterly destroyed. Nothing would break Phil more than losing his beloved daughter in such a horrific way.

As Keanu arrives at the storage yard where Louise is being held prisoner, he finds her trapped in a container but ends up locked in with her. With both their lives at risk, both Phil and Ben are soon in the area searching for clues and seeking a showdown.
But has Phil been led into a trap? As he is attacked from behind, the ambush could have tragic consequences. But will Ben be the hero of the hour or has he orchestrated the whole thing?
